Mitt Romney has no choice. His undisclosed tax returns have become a focal point for Democrats. Romney’s wife, Ann, chided the press for hounding her husband for more than the two years of returns (2010 and 2011) he is releasing, telling that Mitt, who's worth an estimated $250 million, has revealed everything "people need to know" about his family's finances.
But did he, really?
Congressional Democrats are proposing legislation that would require all presidential candidates to release 10 years of tax returns. They also want to force disclosure of overseas investments, a way of calling attention to Romney's offshore accounts. Obviously, Democrats see the way to attack Romney. But it’s not just that.
Majority of Americans think that Romney should release more of his tax returns. They feel like he’s hiding something very important. When you run for president you can’t hide tings like tax returns, especially if you are that rich. Telling Americans they don't need more information, like Ann Romney did, is not received well.
Now, even conservatives are demanding that Romney opens up. They are urging Romney to make more returns public and fight back more aggressively against Democratic attacks. Media are keeping this story alive, and that hurts Romney. At this point he really does not need another problem. There’s only one way to solve it. By coming out..
